THE STORY:

Many of you know that I love to run! It reduces my stress, helps to keep me healthy, and allows me to enjoy IPAs! I never thought I would want to run a marathon, and then the bug bit me. I have run the Detroit Marathon, but my running dream has always been to run the NYC Marathon. 

What many of you may not know is that I had a friend that passed away on March 21, 2011 from melanoma. Tami Wood-Lively was such a vibrant, sassy lady. She was full of spunk and had a laughter that filled a room, as well as every heart that heard her enjoying life.  It is my honor to fundraise for melanoma and run this race. I hope to have half the strength and courage that Tami embodied as I fulfill my running dream on November 6, 2016!

The picture I posted is of a fun night in New York, with Tami. Also in the picture is my good friend Dawn, who has been such an inspiration to me and is a big reason I'm running NYC!

 

Fighting Melanoma Every Step of the Way

  • Melanoma is the most underfunded of all cancers by federal and private agencies.
  • Early detection makes melanoma highly curable, but it is the least screened cancer.
  • People find their own melanoma more frequently than doctors do and melanoma detection is not a training requirement for most medical disciplines.
